Rickson Truck Wheels As owners of ¾ and one-ton pickups, we were frustrated with the rapid wear and poor handling of our 16″ light truck (LT) tires. Plus, when we really loaded up our rigs, we felt that our safety was marginal… at best. As engineers and innovators, we knew there had to be a better answer. Using a commercial-grade tire made sense, but there was no wheel available to put them on our trucks and we didn’t want to use adaptors. We figured that if we wanted better handling, improved tire wear, and a larger safety factor, with a direct bolt- on fit, that others must too. Frustrated at the lack of availability of such a wheel, we set out to produce 17.5″ & 19.5″ wheels in the correct bolt patterns and hub bores for our trucks, and now, for virtually any application that can benefit from an upgrade to commercial- duty wheels and tires. We are proud of that fact that we manufacture our wheels here in Hunt Valley, Maryland, U.S.A.
